Gasunie, Groningen Seaports to develop LNG infrastructure in Ems Harbour

Gasunie and Groningen Seaports signed an agreement to research the possibilities of creating infrastructure in the Ems Harbour in the north of Groningen for the supply of LNG by ship, including the unloading and gaseous injection in the gas transport network.

With an LNG facility in the Ems Harbour, the possibilities to import natural gas will expand, as the supply of gas from the Groningen-field is further reduced.

In collaboration with market parties, Gasunie will survey which technical, logistical and commercial concepts would be suitable while Groningen Seaports will survey location related matters in the Ems Harbour, the companies informed in a statement.

The companies say that adding LNG infrastructure at Ems Harbour would result in a larger diversity in sources and supply routes for energy supply in North-West Europe. This is important in the light of  the production issues in Groningen and demand and supply developments in Europe.
